Car wash proceeds Friday aid Homes with Hope
Updated 10:24 am, Thursday, September 3, 2015
Proceeds from car washes at Westport Wash & Wax all day Friday will be donated to Homes with Hope, the local agency that helps the homeless and hungry.
The business at 791 Post Road East is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
It marks the 15th consecutive year that Westport Wash & Wax has donated a day’s worth of proceeds to the non-profit, according to publicity for the event. Scott, Laila and Craig Tiefenthaler, owners of Westport Wash & Wax, over that time raised nearly $70,000 for Homes with Hope, the press release states.
“It is really fantastic to have local support like this from local businesses,” Jeff Wieser, president of Homes with Hope, said in the statement. “It brings a community feel to the area knowing people like the Tiefenthalers are willing to be so generous.”
